As students come first for schools, members come first for Independent Schools Queensland (ISQ). We are proud to serve as a not-for-profit organisation to support member school governors, leaders and teachers in all facets of their roles.

Our members are independent schools of varying sizes, geographic locations, religious affiliations and educational philosophies. The majority of independent schools operate autonomously and are separately accountable to their parent and school communities. What unifies our member schools is their diversity, their commitment to meeting and exceeding rigorous National Standards and their focus on continuous improvement.

ISQ membership is voluntary and open to all not-for-profit, non-government schools in Queensland. Member schools pay an annual subscription.
